About Council

Gympie Regional Council consists of the Mayor and eight councillors who speak on behalf of the community of eight electorates.

Our Mayor and councillors work on behalf of you, our community to make sure your voice is heard while decisions and plans are made to improve our great region.

Gympie Regional Council also consists of a hardworking, dedicated workforce who:

  • Service, plan and design all the Council roads, parks, footpaths, water and wastewater infrastructure including the maintenance of over 100 parks and almost 3,000 km of roads.

  • Provide customer services for over 50,0000 residents at our Town Hall, Customer Contact Centre, Planning Office, Libraries and Art Gallery.

  • Manage our eight waste management facilities and consider our environmental impacts.

  • Provide growth opportunities for business and tourism.

  • Enforce our local laws and maintain our facilities including 36 local community halls, six swimming pools, equestrian centre and saleyards.

  • Ensure our finances are carefully managed and our community is supported by providing facilities such as our eight skate parks, holiday programs and grants assistance.

  • Organise events and opportunities to support our diverse community from bush to beach.

And more… take a look around the website to see what other services and facilities we provide.
